Do you care about sustainability in the curriculum? The 5th SEEd Annual Policy Forum – a great place to learn about changes and opportunities in policy, hear from experts and develop networking and collaborative working opportunities around your own policy areas of interest.

This year we will be exploring the UK’s curriculum and sustainability issues, with 3 expert panel sessions focusing on National Curriculum Updates; Green Skills and the Green Economy; and Current and Emerging Environmental Policy.

  • insight into current policy and innovative thinking in sustainability and education
  • potential solutions – work with others in the ‘Open Space Technology’ afternoon session
  • potential collaborative project and policy ideas

What people have said about previous fora:

I also don’t think that there is anyone who is more aware of the reality of the current context in which learning for sustainability is now struggling to maintain its hard won position in the day-to-day life of schools across England [than SEEd].” Ben Hren, Waste Watch


“SEEd has taken up a previously unoccupied role as a coordinator for national action on ESD, and its policies and actions since its launch reflect its importance as a driver for ESD action and the DESD.” Education for Sustainable Development in the UK in 2010, p.30 (UNESCO UK ESD report)
